Husband, wife test over limit
Police are stunned that a woman drove to collect her husband from a checkpoint after he allegedly tested above the legal limit, and was then found to have an even higher reading herself. The woman, 55, arrived at the Paraparaumu checkpoint to pick up her 54-year-old partner. She was tested and allegedly found to have an even higher breath alcohol reading. Inspector Jan Craig said it was beyond belief someone would turn up to a checkpoint to pick up another drink driver when they had been drinking themselves.
